FAIRCORE4EOSC at the EOSC Symposium 2022

The EOSC Symposium is the main EOSC annual event and takes place this year in Prague, Czech Republic, from 14th-17th November 2022 as part of the calendar of events of the Czech presidency of the Council of the EU. This coincides with the Second EOSC Tripartite Event on the 15th of November 2022.

FAIRCORE4EOSC takes in part in the EOSC Symposium 2022 with two sessions, and one presentation in a joint session:

EOSC PID Policy and FAIRCORE4EOSC: Measuring Compliance

Wednesday 16 November 16:30-18:00 CET

FAIRCORE4EOSC aims to provide a set of operational services and components to support the increased use and utility of EOSC. One of its deliverables will be a Compliance Assessment Toolkit (CAT), configured for EOSC policy compliance monitoring. EOSC has made a start with publishing a policy that is being refined by the EOSC Task Force on PID Policy. FAIRCORE4EOSC, via its work on CAT and the activities of the the Technical Bridging Team will engage the relevant task forces, other EOSC-focused projects, including FAIR-IMPACT, and the broader community in an effort to make the toolkit as useful and relevant as possible. This session will actively engage end users and the EOSC community to confirm the scope of the policy and mechanisms to measure and confirm compliance.

Semantic Interoperability in EOSC

Thursday 17 November 11:00-12:30 CET

in collaboration with FAIR-IMPACT project

The diversity in the current RI landscape of data and metadata formats and schema poses problems for interdisciplinary research. The FAIRCORE4EOSC and FAIR-IMPACT projects propose an interoperability strategy that allows for format, schema and data type diversity, and facilitates interoperability where needed but remains manageable. With this strategy, semantic artefact registries and smart tooling facilitate researchers to maintain semantic artefacts, create semantic mappings and conversions, and share them, thus leveraging community expertise. Providing smart tools that promote adoption of data and metadata interoperability best practices like FAIR semantic artefacts, will advance current practices but remain inclusive wrt. registration and sharing of already existing resources.

Timing (CET) Topic Speakers
11:00-11:05 Introduction Daan Broeder (FAIRCORE4EOSC)
11:05-11:20  Our activities in FAIR-IMPACT and FAIRCORE4EOSC Oscar Corcho (FAIR-IMPACT) and Tommi Suominen
11:20-11:30 Added value for research communities and other stakeholders (FC4E)  
11:30-11:50 Open microphone on needs and requirements on semantic interoperability  
11:50-12:10 Co-design of FAIR-IMPACT collection of semantic artefacts and catalogues  
12:10-12:20  Discussion: Does semantic interoperability get enough attention?  
12:20-12:30  Closing & next steps

Use cases demonstrating the added value of EOSC

Thursday 17 November 09:00-10:30 CET

This session aims to demonstrate a broad range of use cases from across Europe to showcase the value and applicability of EOSC. The Talks will pitch on various success stories from open source services, through collaborative approaches, to  cutting-edge implementations of EOSC that may serve as catalysts in multidisciplinary, breakthrough innovation as well as in mainstreaming Open Science for the broader stakeholder community.

Case studies demonstrating the added value of FAIRCORE4EOSC components - Fanny Adloff (DKRZ)

We will introduce the case studies from the FAIRCORE4EOSC project with a focus on highlighting how a large spectrum of research communities and national infrastructures will benefit from the components developed in the project. On top of general benefits, we will provide user stories to depict concrete examples showcasing possible utilisation of the components. Ultimately, all developed components will be fully integrated in EOSC and profit from the added value of the EOSC core services.
